Generation 1992 to the main stage please!
The European Commission has launched a creativity contest through which young people that are exactly 20 years old can make their own vision about the European common market known.
The contest is called Generation 1992 and it marks the passing of 20 years since the unique European market was established. Now the European market unites 27 countries and allows free circulation of merchandise, capital, people and services.
The articles expected for submission should be from the following categories: education and citizenship, work places and entrepreneurship, culture and free time or consumers and the environment. Being a contest where imagination can roam free, the participants are encouraged to share their own view and experience. The youth interested in this contest can use as means of expression the pen, the brush, a photo camera, a computer, a tablet or a mobile phone.
The competition was opened in April and will be ongoing until 9th September 2012 when 20 finalists will go to the European Week for the Unique Market held in Brussels.
The award ceremony will take place on the 15th of October and the winners will be invited for 4 weeks in one of the European Institutions for a short internship. Of course, there are some prizes involved like tablets, smart phones, cameras and MP3 players, travel tickets and much more.

Unfortunately I am over the age limit but I wish those that qualify the best of luck and feel free to show the big guys in Brussels how their decisions have changed your life so far.
